HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 c115W
93. Sir I. Fraser

asked the Minister of Food if he will now arrange to increase the importation of maize and other feeding stuffs so as to produce more British eggs and bacon.

Dr. Summerskill

We are planning to purchase increased quantities of maize and other feeding stuffs during 1947. The actual quantities we obtain will depend on the outturn of the harvests and the quantities of such grains needed for human food during the year to meet any shortage in wheat.
